Blue-winged Olives
Baetis

Tiny Baetis mayflies are perhaps the most commonly encountered and imitated by anglers on all American trout streams due to their great abundance, widespread distribution, and trout-friendly emergence habits.

This one seems to lead to Couplet 35 of the Key to Genera of Perlodidae Nymphs and the genus Isoperla, but I'm skeptical that's correct based on the general look. I need to get it under the microscope to review several choices in the key, and it'll probably end up a different Perlodidae.
27" brown trout, my largest ever. It was the sub-dominant fish in its pool. After this, I hooked the bigger one, but I couldn't land it.

Just a really good video! I watched this every night for about a week when I first started.

One of Gary Borger's contributions for me, was his finishing knot for the fly. No tool, just twice under, pull up, and a drop of cement, and done. That was year's ago, and I have never used a tool since. Gary's comment was after showing you how simple the knot was..."Are we tying the fly to fish with?...or wearing it in our lapel? Gary had me hooked 100%.

Wait a minute!? What's going on here on TroutNut this morning? Creno dumps a pile of wonderful stuff in our laps from the Lloyd collection, on another thread North Country Spiders,another has tips on tying with snowshoe rabbit hair, and now fly-fishing with Borger...And no rants from Spence!!!

Maybe that baptist out west, or where ever he is, was right...The world ended a few days ago and we are in an angler's version of heaven...Glad to see you all made it through to the other side...:)

There is just too much for one fella to digest here at one time today...Thanks!
